I didn't get this with Plat charge.
I got it with Plat Charge, not with Plat Res Credit or Rewards Advantage Charge Not happy Jan - but 1 out of 3 is better than nothing. Given Scott Sorry-son 's Summer of Discontent, we need more travel based rebates to encourage us to travel. Booked a Kangaroo Island ferry and a rebate would have been nice on this given its pricing in the mid hundreds for a car and a few people

I haven't got any new offers on my card this week - can't really tell the difference to the weeks that have useless and/or shoe offers - so i've taken the opportunity to poke around the AmEx site a bit.

I've noticed that bonus points aren't showing for shop small purchases and the it looks like bonus points are applied at the end of the statement period in one sum. Is that the way it should be? Makes it hard to track where the bonus points come from. I also have a welcome offer for 5x MR points at Uber/Uber Eats. I bought a GC and can't see if it gets the bonus points.

I’ve been getting the SS bonus points individually but always as a seperate entry ie not usually linked to the original purchase - when you go to your online points statement.

Thanks @SYD There's zero points in the bonus column on my rewards account for ANY transaction, just some on the last day of the statement period. So I can't see which transactions earned bonus points. Sounds like that's normal. Annoying but SS is not something I'm pursuing this year anyway.

That is normal for me for years. Bonus is always standalone points appears days after the transaction and is hard to match yet possible if you do some maths.

I haven’t had regular bonus points (eg QANTAS purchase) for a while but when I do I get the bonus points on the same line of the purchase eg spend $100 on QF and it shows 100 pts for the purchase and 100 pts in the bonus column.

Which reminds me I need to chase up missing bonus points for QF Wine purchases (unless my account is broken also and they’re just lumping them on somewhere).

Shop Small points appeared as new line items, but I believe bonus points from spend categories (e.g. extra point per dollar on Qantas spend with Qantas Ultimate, 3x groceries/fuel on Plat Edge & DJs cards) shows up on the same line as the transaction under the bonus column.

Endota Spa - 150 / 20

Just a heads up for anyone who used this offer with Hey You - you probably won't receive the $10 credit automatically.

I've now received a $10 Hey You credit on my statement so it seems this has been resolved.

Useless for me
Yes Useless Unless you have a partner who loves shopping ... Have notice the offers seem to be getting worse of late, the last decent offer was send 50 get 10, twice, when using Google pay

Oddly, I have been given another woollies welcome offer. This time its $100 spend for $5 back. Think it was $50 spend last time and two times.
Which card is this on? Mibd you 5 back for 100??? Reject Shop offer owned by Woolies was spend 20, get 5 back -saved to 2 out of 3 cards and bought some rubbish .....
